Great Times with Old Friends . . .

Although the forecast was for clouds and rain today, it started out warm and sunny. In fact by noon we had the AC’s on. So I was outside working on my chore list.

First up, I got back on my headlights. I removed the old passenger side unit, replaced the clear turn signal bulbs with amber ones, and then installed the new one. Again, easy pezy.

Then I removed the new unit Chris and I installed yesterday so I could replace the clear bulbs with amber ones on that one too. But the reinstall was anything but easy pezy. I’m not sure why, but it was a real pain in the butt to get it lined up and tightened down correctly. But finally, all of a sudden, it just worked. Going to be interesting to see what it looks like tonight with both lights installed.

I spent the rest of the afternoon working down my list, trying to catch up for lost time due to all the bad weather. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like the weather is going to allow me to get some paint on the rig bumper, but we’ll see. I may be able to do it on the way to Tucson. Weather-wise, it looks like Las Cruces might be a possibility.

About 4:15 Jan and I headed up to Webster to have dinner at Zio’s with our long-time friends, Bob and Maria.

Bob and Maria

We’ve known them since the mid-80’s, and as I said, they’re pretty much our oldest living friends.

We had a lot of catching up to do, even though we just saw each other 6 or 8 months ago. So much catching up, in fact, that we were at the restaurant for a little over 3 hours, not getting back home until about 8:15. Of course we’ll get together again when we come back through here in August.

Coming home, the new headlights performed great. I still need to touch up the alignment, but really it’s not that bad now.

Tomorrow morning Jan and I have our annual physical checkups and then we’ll be done with all the medical stuff for this year.

We hope.


Thought for the Day:

“The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” – Hermann Goering, April 18, 1946
